Time for sheriff to move on

It looks like Sheriff Doug Gillespie has decided to stop whining about more taxes for his department and begun to threaten to cut services unless he gets his way. This pout is in spite of the $130 million he has stored away for some possible problem years from now.

The best solution is to wish him well and hurry him on his way. If, as he threatens, Metro were to delay responding to minor traffic accidents, would they respond for the inevitable traffic jam?

Perhaps they will show up when the inevitable road rage rears its ugly head and someone is injured or killed. By the way, who determines what constitutes a “minor traffic accident” from a phone call?

Finally, if you think your car insurance is expensive now, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
